Hands-on Science for Real Life

Lessons Your Kids Will Love • Real Science You'll Use Outside School

Imagine a day of teaching science...

And your kids love it!  Digging in and questioning how the world works.  They have meaningful observations and know how science applies to them every day.

You don’t even have to know the science yourself because that is done for you.  You just get to explore the activities with them.  And you don’t have to pay out a ton for expensive science supplies.

Ok, we know that this can sound like fantasy land.

Kids don’t always love science. And they FOR SURE don’t know “when they are ever going to use this again”.  They can probably regurgitate some facts but… what’s the scientific method again?

You don’t have the time to research all the science that goes on behind those cutesy Pinterest projects.  You want science that is going to be easy, meaningful, and won’t bankrupt you.

Hands-on Science is the unicorn you've been looking for!

We’re all about getting hands-on and exploring the processes and thinking skills of science rather than a list of facts.

Because in the age of “alternative facts” and science dominated news, there is a clear need to prepare our kids with the science literacy for tomorrow.

We're Everyday Scientists

We’ve sold over 300 of our science lessons online and taught hundreds of local science lessons for homeschoolers and classrooms.

We use science every day and are passionate about teaching kids the WHY and HOW of science.  Because even without a science degree, science is part of grownup life.

Why Hands-On?

Science is best experienced not just read about.  Here’s a few reason’s why we think hands-on science is tops!

Better Learning

Physically experiencing science allows kids to learn better and perform better on tests (University of Chicago study)

Mistakes are Valuable

Science is all about trial and error. So getting in and actually making errors and learning from failure is just as important as knowing facts.

See What Our Customers Say

We’ve sold our science lessons and units individually 300+ times and have taught them over and over to local groups.  Now you can get them all together in one place! Aren’t you a lucky ducky?

I used this with my Cub Scout Bear Den for their Forensics elective. It covers EVERYTHING needed for the badge, minus a trip to the police station. We added the Who Stole the Cake mystery at the end of our unit for a bit of fun, and the kids loved it. I'm planning on using this with our homeschool co-op, too.

Who Stole the Cake Unit

The bee lesson is very cute and interactive for the kids to follow along. I picked up books to go with it to make it a longer lesson. This is not necessary since the lesson is informative as is and have 2 fun hands-on activities.

We currently have 13 full units on a range of science topics and we'll be adding new content each month.

Science Videos

Science videos explaining the important concepts for each unit.

Hands-on Lessons & Activities

Our units are filled with ways to experience science while learning about it, not just textbooks and worksheets.

We know most homeschoolers teach multiple ages at once. Our lessons are suitable for most elementary ages and we'll give you ideas and separate resources when needed to modify for older/younger students.

Everyday Science

A section for each unit focusing on that science topic in the news, recent stories, or how it helps you every day!

STEAM Project for Each Unit

We are STEAM Thinkers after all! We'll build even more thinking and problem-solving skills with a STEAM project in each unit.

Online Science Fair

Forget your regular ol' school gym science fair! This is online and REALLY digs into the scientific method. Judged by real scientists for cool prizes!

Build a unit study

List of ideas and resources to extend out a Hands-on Science unit into a full unit study with math, language arts, and other subjects.

Stuff for parents

This isn't just a library of resources. We've got a robust commenting system where you can ask questions, upload photos or video of what you did, and share successes and failures. Plus, extra training if you are interested in teaching better.

These screenshots from our unit page about rocks show you what kind of goodies you’ll find for each unit.

Got Questions?

The program is built for elementary school ages.  There are a variety of materials for different levels and we give tips for adjusting to younger or older ages.  It is perfect for a family teaching mixed-aged kids together.

No.  You just need 1 parent account that you can use for teaching multiple kiddos. 

We try to mention applicable Next Generation Science Standards where possible.  We do not follow NGSS exactly but we do like that these standards including engineering, modeling, etc.

This is not a religious program.  We are a religious family but we focus on teaching scientific concepts and leave religious discussions up to your family.
